Happy Family Day!

Did you know that Family Day in BC is moving one week later starting in 2019?

The statutory holiday will move from the second to third Monday in February, 6 years after its launch in B.C.

What Do People Do?

On Family Day, many people plan and take part in activities aimed at the whole family. These include visiting art exhibitions, watching movies, skating on outdoor ice rinks, playing board games, and taking part in craft activities. Some communities plan special public events, and art galleries and museums may have reduced price or free entry.

As the weather is usually very cold in February, hot chocolate and freshly baked cookies are popular snacks. Other people use the long weekend as an opportunity for a short winter break or to travel to visit family members or friends.
